After opting to bowl by MS Dhoni, the home team did not have to wait long to celebrate. Three wickets in the first three overs with only nine runs.

Opener Chris Lynn tried straight delivery on Deepak Chahar’s ball before falling for LBW. With a slight jump on the dull track, more power was needed than power, but the approach of KKR batsmen was not ideal anywhere.
